the Baroque movement was all about.
- All about rationalism (epistemology in particular)
- Awesome (in the most literal way); always trying to outdo the Greek and Romans.
o Example: commentary within commentary seen in the many translations of Don Quixote

- Milton:
o Worked under Cromwell
o Hyper-polyglot
o He and Cromwell were Puritans and Republicans
Puritanism = Protestantism minus any traces of Catholicism

o Paradise Lost showed how detached people are from their (historical) past.
Milton saw a rift between the old ways and new ways (ex: Renaissance, which
was all about reviving the old vs. Baroque, which was all about outdoing the
past)
Past (classical) vs Future (Modern)

Had Biblical references as well as Greco-Roman beliefs.
Somehow brought together something monotheistic and something
polytheistic. (ambitious af)
Controversial because it was all about Satan.

Revolutionary
Content-wise: referenced well-known Biblical figures (familiar to the
people) but focused on Satan (revolutionary)
Form: in the form of an epic (familiar) but its meter bounced from place
to place to make readers feel like they are falling with Satan.
Used Germanic words (long) and Latin words (short) = choppy flow;
unfamiliar words made readers feel lost, which represented how
detached they were with the classics.
